Winter Fun

We had begun to think that winter was going to pass us by when suddenly last weekend the heavens opened and deposited loads of snow all over the garden.

Sunday morning the snow fell very heavily and Joan was quite worried about how she would get to work the following day! We live on top of a hill and the roads into the town get very slippery when it is icy.

She made the decision that Oscar would not be able to visit his 'old people' because of the danger on the road - I think she worries far more about our safety than her own - and she didn't want to risk getting stuck as Oscar would have got very cold and bored if they were stuck in the car together!

It snowed more and more as the week went on and one morning when we woke up the garden was absolutely covered in the stuff!

I sat by the window and demanded to be let out to explore but as soon as Joan opened the door I changed my mind! I put out a single tentative paw into the stuff and decided that it might be wiser to stay indoors.

Needless to say the fact that it was cold and wet made absolutely no difference to Max and Oscar. Max and I remember snow from our first year but Oscar hasn't really seen it apart from a very light sprinkling so Max took him off to the bottom of the garden to explore.

They had a great time jumping into it and wandering around. It wasn't terribly deep but when your legs are quite short it can get stuck on your fur. They both came back into the house sort of 'wearing' the snow as they had big lumps of it stuck on their coats.

Max jumped on the table in the garden to get the best view of what was going on around him and you can see from the pictures alongside and above that the snow is sticking to the underside of his coat.

He didn't mind at all and when Joan brought them in so that she could go to work. She had to spend a few minutes getting the snow off them so that they didn't get too cold (doesn't she know we have 'fur coats')

Oscar didn't want to be outdone of course so he also got on the table and then disappeared down the garden and started jumping into the snow around the edge of the fence carrying out pretend attacks on any unsuspecting leaves he could find!

I find the trouble with snow is it comes with cold weather and personally I much prefer to warmer weather of Spring and the chance it brings to sit and bask in the sunshine.

I expect Spring will soon be with us as we already have a few crocus and daffodils who have braved their way out of the snow!
